Public Hearing - Plat Approval with Variances - V20-015 - 0.462 Acres - Land Lot 627 - 1730 & 1740 Seneca Court - LaDonna Lewis.

ISSUE AND BACKGROUND: The applicant is requesting approval to reconfigure four lots (Lots 8 - 11 of Creatwood Forest) into three residential lots. The subject property is currently comprised of four lots of record with two existing single-family homes (Lots 8 & 11) all owned by a single property owner. The two middle lots (Lots 9 & 10) are undeveloped and their respective side property lines extend into Lots 8 & 11.

2. Allow encroachment into the 75’ impervious surface setback.
3. Encroachment into the 75’ impervious surface setback shall be replaced at a 1:1 ratio.
4. Approval is cond...
